Randy Pausch Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams
Upon watching the video of Randy Pausch entitled “Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams”, I was inspired by the way he narrates his childhood experience and how he project the right attitude when dealing with childhood dreams, how to enable dreams of other people and what lessons are learned once you both achieve your dreams and at the same time enable dreams of other people. The three aforementioned things are of great help in my own personal life.
Dealing with childhood dreams are simple yet true. Pausch made it clear in his video that as a child all of us have simple aspirations in life. I can say that we have the common dreams like winning stuffed animals in amusement parks and be a super hero. I believe that this particular part of his video applies to my life because it made my childhood happier and full of meaning. It made m motivated to dream more and dream bigger as I grow up.
Second thing that is brilliant about the video that applies best in my life is when he talks about enabling dreams of others. Pausch was able to motivate others to achieve their dreams and be at their best foot every time. I believe we share the same goal since I use to cheer up people whenever they get discourage in life.
Never loose the childlike wonder. It is the best message from Pausch because a child is full of dreams and imagination. It may sound crazy but it motivates them to stay happy and never give up dreaming all through their lives. The third part of his talk which focuses on his dreams of enabling others dream is really admirable. Pausch is never selfish as he dreams not only for himself but also for the dreams of other people. I can apply his optimistic attitude in my life because I can also serve as an inspiration for others. Only a life live with service to others is a life worth living.
